I'm ALIVE and swatching a Melissa polish!

Good Afternoon!!

It’s been FOREVER since I last posted and I do apologize. I’ve been slacking because I started college(whooo-hooo!!) I only felt like I could really post something today cuz I have time right now. Moreso, I feel like I can cuz I had such a productive day yesterday. Organized all my clothes, put summer cloths away, brought winter clothes out, changed/cleaned out my purse, and finished all the details of my latest school paper.  Just saying…but organizing may be one of my favorite things to do. :P See?

The only thing I haven't done yet it color code....

Yes, I am THAT obsessive in the way I do things. But I can see everything, it’s nice and neat and I won’t have to worry bout where they’re supposed to go, cuz they will have a place now. :D

Yes, my drawer is missing a knob. It's irritating.

And Yes. I do keep candy in my drawers. Where else am I going to keep it?  :9



This mani today is a swatch and I can’t for the life of me find out where the brand comes from. It’s an unnamed polish by Melissa. This polish was one that I got from a friend that was wanting to get rid of all her polish( for some insane reason…:P) and this was one that I took. Practically brand new and it wears great!

I think that this may be my new fav polish for several reasons.
#1. It’s kinda glittery without the pain of trying to take it off.
#2. It’ a darker shade, which I like.
#3. It goes on *so* nicely.
Again, I do apologize for the lack of post as of late, but I probably won’t be doing a post every week since I don’t have as much time on my hands. ^^ Hehe! Time on my hands…lol But, my goal is to be more consistent in getting my school done so that I’m not posting once every two or three months.

So that’s the plan.  :)

Maze Mani On Ugly Toes..

Ok, peoples. I know I’ve been a total slacker this past month. I’m sorry. I started college(yea me!!) and I just haven’t had the time to actually write a post but I’ll be writing a few tonight and saving them for a few days from now.  Here’s o one I did a week or so ago.

So I really didn’t like the white that I had because it was all gloppy and thick(which I fixed yesterday) so I decided to use acrylic paint. For the entire thing. And I found out why you don’t use acrylics for the entire mani, which I will explain later. 

I had been on YouTube watching nail videos(shocker) and I stumbled across this one and I thought “Oh, that would be really cool if you showed a path!” So that’s what I did. Started with a white base and did the maze part with acrylics. I printed off a maze from my computer to help me with actually doing a maze and it was harder than I thought. I’ve never been one to do mazes so it was weird…

So it worked out just fine using all acrylics at the beginning until they started flaking…

You know how the acrylics are kinda chalky in texture after it dries? My guess is that’s why it flaked, cuz it wasn’t one whole layer. And because it was chalky, whenever you’d move your toes and the nail bed would flex, instead of flexing with it, it would just crack underneath it. So that’s what happened. 

Definitely a good learning experience, but one I’ll only do once.  :) What are some nail blunders you’ve made?
